KernelForbin 10/18/12 - This show was replayed in thePhish room on Turntable.FM

A Mellow Mood debut and opener was great, but my now means indicated the direction for the rest of the show. This one goes well under the radar and keeps you on your toes the entire time. LxL, Ghost are really excellent and seem to come out of nowhere after the very "mellow" opening. The set sort of meanders on from here, but really hits big with Taste, this is a must-hear version.

Set Two gives us a standard but high-energy Birds and Bowie, neither of which are slouches... but the REAL big moment comes with the rare second set Gin, which clocks in at 17 minutes before going in to a 7 minute ambient jam. Take a listen to this one without a doubt. They close out the show with Fire, pretty much taking a complete 180 from where they started with Set 1.

RobesPierre This was my first indoor phish show... and as i remember it was pretty damn good.

The past summer i went to pnc, camden and hershey and loved them all... but seeing phish indoors is what really sealed the deal. I was loving it. i remember being particularly blown away by bowie.

i need to listen to this again. maybe today... it is the 11th anniversary.

The__Van Off to a mostly good start!
Mellow Mood and LxL opener give a nice chill introduction to this tour. But they’re just a warmup to a very spirited early set 1 Ghost. Listening to this Ghost gave me flashbacks to the 6/28 Gin. Seriously great celebratory jamming, and as I said earlier in this thread, it’s not even listed on the jam charts! Bouncing up next is a fine cool down, but unfortunately the set whiffs a bit. Odd because it looks great paper, but the flow just isn’t there. Glide is the low point. Trey attempts many times to lock in with everyone but he can’t seem to find his footing. It’s bad. Axilla restores some momentum with a straight rocker... and surprise, surprise we see the return of the Axilla II psychedelic outro albeit without the “don’t shine that thing in my face” line. Taste gets us back to where we were with Ghost. Strong version right here. Definitely one of the stronger type I versions of Taste I’ve heard. You’d think that ugly Glide never happened at this point. Golgi ties up an alright set.

Birds starts off set 2 well enough with some good type I action. I can feel the push to hook in on something that would ascend into the clouds but it never materializes. Next up is Windora Bug and I’ll be honest, I don’t like this song. Bowie starts up with some spacey weirdness in the intro. The jam, while initially promising, results in a fairly standard version that is enjoyable but not very memorable. Back at the Chicken Shack provides some silliness at the start of quarter 4 of this show. The real star here is the Bathtub Gin > Jam. Gin picks up where Ghost left off with fun high energy licks and excited improv. While not as magnificent as 6/28, it gets the job done very well. As the final cymbal crashes of Gin fade away, a nice ambient jam emerges. But this shall be no ordinary ambient jam as Fish totes out the vacuum and Trey hops on the drums. The result is... interesting I’ll give it that. Zero brings set 2 to a close and Fire is a suitable encore.

Overall, a bit weird in spots but Ghost, Taste, and Gin > Jam are definitely worth revisiting.

Bob_Loblaw A decent show

Ghost has a pretty straight forward "Stretching their legs" type jam. Glide is pretty botched. Axilla is actually a very solid and explosive version. Very strong taste great work by Trey.

Bowie has a cool extended intro and a nice midsection. Back at the chicken shack is an interesting choice for mid set. It does feel a bit slow and I think loses some momentum. The Gin jam is very blissful and upbeat as usual. The jam after goes into a beautiful ambiance followed by some vaccume.

Overall a just ok show. Not the most inspired unfortunately considering the great setlist.

Review by Palmer

Palmer Always the anticipation for what the show will bring.

SET 1- Mellow Mood wow new cover for the boys, sounded excellent and got the place alive. My seats sucked sort of behind the stage but I walked away to see a better angle and it paid off.

Limb X Limb- I forever have loved this song, sounded standard but was happy as hell to hear it.

Ghost- Got things rocking out hard, Love the slow build introduction and the jamming that follows.

Bouncing- Good breather, good song nothing fancy.

The Horse- Like it, Trey on his solo

Silent- Page is the man, big fan of this one and anything off rift.

Saw it again- Mother Fu
